Cheer Up, Buttercup!

I just have a quick card to share today. This encouragement card was done for the Clean & Simple Challenge #19 over at the Splitcoast Stampers website a couple of weeks ago. The challenge was to create a card based on this layout from Natasha Trupp.

I started by randomly stamping my umbrellas in Summer Sunrise and Charcoal inks. Then I added the sentiment and the splashes which were covered in glitter and Glossy Accents. The white panel was matted with Spring Rain cardstock and mounted to a Summer Sunrise base using foam adhesive. I used a white gel pen to accent the corners and called it done.

Thanks for checking in today! I won't see you tomorrow because it's Sean's birthday and we'll be busy checking out the animals and picnicking at the zoo. Have a good day!

Cardstock: Summer Sunrise, Spring Rain - Papertrey Ink; Ultimate White - Strathmore
Ink: Summer Sunrise - Papertrey Ink; Seascape, Charcoal - Palette
Stamps: Scattered Showers, Pond Life (splashes) - Papertrey Ink
Other: Foam Tape - Scotch; White Gel Pen - Sakura

Oh I love this. I didn't really see a need for this set, living in the desert, but this is a cute card. I may have to rethink that decision!
